“In the bathroom, I looked at my reflection in the mirror and made a face when I remembered one of Dad’s favorite jokes.

“‘You got your Mexican from your mom and your punk from me,’ he’d say.

“I had the Mexican going on for sure: brown skin and thick brown hair that was lighter than Mom’s but darker than Dad’s that I usually wore in two braids. I had Mom’s dark eyes too. My punk, on the other hand, was terribly lacking.”  (from The First Rule of Punk by Celia C. Pérez)
